JUNEAU, Alaska — Republican Gov. Sean Parnell's re-election campaign says a vendor mistake resulted in a political fundraising appeal being sent to state government email addresses.

Spokesman Luke Miller said this happened after the campaign had requested, and been assured, that any governmental email addresses would be suppressed from the mailing list.

Democrats seized on the incident, with the party's executive director, Kay Brown, saying it is wrong for Parnell to use state resources to "promote his campaign."

Last year, the campaign reported that political emails urging recipients to check out Parnell's campaign page on Facebook were inadvertently sent to some governmental, education and legislative addresses. Campaign manager Jerry Gallagher reported that to the Alaska Public Offices Commission.
